I suppose we will find some way to mine it.

'Harvesting the riches of the Perseus Galaxy Cluster is not possible. But researchers will mine the Suzaku X-ray data for scientific insights'.
At a distance of 250 million light years, observational 'mining' will be the only kind. The 'Treasure Trove', in the title, refers to the treasure of knowledge we may gain in the understanding of how the elements, of which everything is composed, including mankind, were formed.

Thanks Nancy

I would imagine that if aliens exist (and they probably do!) then they probably are mining it already!

We need to be mining our solar system and getting out there before the aliens grab all the planets!
